July 24, 2015 – Hamilton Spectator – Storefront on James North transforming into business accelerator
Hamilton's Forge Downtown is scheduled to open Sept. 1 as a "business accelerator," a place for young entrepreneurs hoping to commercialize their inventions. The effort is a collaboration between McMaster University, the Innovation Factory at McMaster Innovation Park and Mohawk College.
The operation will be an offshoot of The Forge at the Innovation Factory, which opened less than a year ago and has worked with about 20 would-be entrepreneurs.
The two operations will be funded by $1 million from the Ontario Centres of Excellence's Campus Linked Accelerator Program.
